New WRI research in Liberia finds that women’s participation in local forest management can improve both their socioeconomic status and the sustainability of forest resources that support local communities’ lives and livelihoods. Yet complex power dynamics, authority and competing interests converge to prevent women from engaging in these decision-making processes. This paper finds that significant social and regulatory change must occur to foster gender and social equity in forest governance.

This working paper is a contribution to the FOLU 2019 report, Growing Better: Ten Critical Transitions to Transform Food and Land Use. The paper answers four questions:

  • What public sector measures could conserve and restore forests?
  • Why haven’t these public measures sufficiently worked at scale yet?
  • How can one overcome the economic and political economy barriers to these measures?
